Los Angeles artist and tattooist Michael Kortez has been displaying his work publicly since the age of 8 at various galleries throughout California, New York, and as far as Mexico. This includes group shows such as Laluzapalooza 2013 at La Luz de Jesus Gallery and two collaborations with Dogtown’s skate icon Tony Alva at Exhibit A Gallery. Michael has just been lined up to design the next line of ALVA’s t-shirts, skateboards and surfboards this year.
